Fostering Vibrant Local Eucharistic Communities (LEC)
By Dr. Nathan Hoppe
Jesus promised that the gates of hell would not prevail against the Church, but in our secularized and digitalized age it feels like we, as Christians, are embattled. This lecture series will provide a renewed vision for the life of local church communities in which every member is equipped to fulfill their God given role in the body of Christ serving one another and witnessing to the world. The lectures will provide guidance for practical personal and community transformation based on decades of ministry experience and in-depth academic study.
